Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 825 asked in the Legislative Council on 14 October 2021 by Hon Nick Goiran

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on

SEXUAL ASSAULT LAWS — RECOMMENDATIONS — COMMISSIONER FOR VICTIMS OF CRIME

825. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the parliamentary secretary representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the answer given on 17 June 2021 to my question without notice 300 in which the parliamentary secretary advised that a working group has been convened, which includes the Director of Public Prosecutions and relevant agencies, and the revelation in the answer to my question without notice on 15 September 2021 that the terms of reference had yet to be finalised. Will the parliamentary secretary now table the terms of reference?

Hon MATTHEW SWINBOURN replied:

I thank the member for some notice of the question. I provide the following answer on behalf of the Attorney General.

As an informal forum, the working group did not end up considering or endorsing terms of reference. Terms of reference for the steering committee, working group and reference group in relation to the sexual violence strategy are still to be finalised.
